Advantages of CCIS Webinars

CCIS has determined that frequent and topical webinars are more supportive to our members than the one-time face-to-face conference. Please watch for the topical webinar options on our website and for the Q and A opportunities. We want to cover the rapidly changing legislation and all of the new events in Independent Study with you. We look forward to seeing you!
